Opening a browser profile

Once a browser profile is created, it is ready to be used.
  1. Click the "Start" button alongside the browser profile to open it. 

  1. As soon as the browser opens, you will see the Multilogin start page. This page shows your current IP address, operating system, geolocation, and User-agent value.
  1. You are now ready to use the browser profile for target websites.
  2. If you need to save your session data, you also need to make sure that you close the profile correctly (read more here).

Updating the browser start page

Websites can only see those cookies that belong to the domain that requests them. This means that multilogin.com cookies can be seen by multilogin.com, facebook.com will see cookies from facebook.com only. This is called Same origin policy, that exists since the creation of browsers, so there is no need to worry that other websites will see that you open https://app.multiloginapp.com/WhatIsMyIP
The start URL replacement is available for all subscription plans starting from version 6.0.3 of Luna. In earlier versions of Multilogin, this feature is only available for the Scale and Custom plans.

The start page for a particular browser profile can be set in the "Overview" section:

The link must be specified in the format https://multilogin.com

Closing a browser profile

After you close a profile, your session data will be syncing with the server. Wait until everything is synced and saved in order to launch the profile again or close the app.
All of your stored data is encrypted. This way only you, the password owner, have access to your session data. Learn more about how it works here.

Please be sure to click the "Close & save" button before closing your browser profile. Clicking the Multilogin button located on the right side of the URL bar of the opened browser profile will give you two options:

  1. "Close & save" – will save your tabs and session data. This is the same as closing the browser using the X button. When the profile is closed, wait until the status "Syncing…" clears up before you close the app (you will get "The browser profile is successfully saved" pop-up confirmation when finished).
  2. "Close browser without saving" – no information will be saved.

If the Multilogin extension is not displayed, click on the puzzle icon in the upper right corner of the browser window to access all extensions added to this profile.
You can set the settings for saving different types of data in the "Storage settings" section. Read more in this article.

Stop button

The "Stop" button in the main application interface allows you to save and close a browser session without switching to its browser window.

Bring to Front button

The Bring to Front button allows quickly switching to an active session window. The window will be moved on top of all other windows.
